This story dates back to 1993, but it's just so beautiful that we just had to share it with you.
Animals are capable of extraordinary things and they never cease to amaze us. Whether it's forming unlikely friendships with members of other speciesthat they normally wouldn't get along with, or trying to save their humans from danger, we are almost always left in awe.
When a mother, no matter what the species, loses their young, it can be incredibly tragic and it's sometimes very difficult to know what we can do to help. Most of the time unfortunately, there is nothing we can do.
And this story is a perfect example of that. Animals adopting the young of another species isn't something that happens every day, so when it does, it truly is a sight to behold and rather beautiful. Their mothering instincts simply prove to be too strong and just take them over completely.
Several days after their birth, Miss Kitty's newborn kittens were sadly too weak to survive and she lost them all. Then, when Smoochy, a neighbouring dog decided to reject her own litter of puppies, Miss Kitty adopted the little ones without a second thought.
What a beautiful resolution for this feline mother who had so much love to give!
